Frequently Asked Questions

When we started this podcast in early 2017, there weren’t very many kids’ podcasts available, and almost none in our exact niche, which is programming that offers both meditation and bedtime stories.

If you are interested in more details, please check out this wonderful article from Global Comment by Philippa Willitts to learn how our podcast got its start and what we’ve learned from the experience of producing our show.

We currently release a new episode every Monday and a “Friday Favorite” episode every Friday at 3am Central time (US). Patreon members also get an extra episode every Wednesday.

Our regular episodes are available on all the major podcast listening applications and many of the smaller ones! Search for “Be Calm on Ahway Island” on your favorite listening app and click the ‘subscribe,’ ‘follow,’ or equivalent button (depending on the app). Or, visit our Subscribe page for direct links to and instructions for the most popular listening platforms!

You can search for recently released episodes on our Episodes page by keyword, episode title or number, character name, learning message, or narrator type. If you cannot find the episode you’re looking for, it has probably been archived.  Our library of past episodes is available in our Patreon Archives. We also re-release select older episodes to the public every Friday. 

While we no longer offer a specific Be Calm on Ahway Island Alexa Skill due to changing Amazon requirements, it’s easier than ever to listen to our episodes using Alexa or an Amazon Echo device! Since summer 2020, podcasts have been included on Amazon Music. You can find Be Calm on Ahway Island on Amazon Music here.

Besides using Amazon Music directly, we recommend this tutorial for other Alexa-based podcast listening methods.

Tip: you may need to double-check the age filter / security settings on your individual Alexa device(s).
